The Listen Down Podcast


Western Sydney band Lizard have been around since the early / mid 90’s. Listen to our conversation with founding members Matt Charnley (Vocals, Guitars) and Jason Dowse (Bass, Rhythm Guitar) as we listen to and discuss a couple tracks from their album ‘Take a Ride’ which was released in May 2019. We dive into their song-writing process, influences and more.

Lizard also features Brendan Maguire on drums and they create a sound that is much bigger than most trios. The album is aptly title because it takes you on a ride through a bluesy, funk-filled forest with milky guitar solos, intricate and tight drums and bass-lines that range from clean funk to a swarm of angry bees.
